The venue was closed for the exclusive birthday bash of the handsome Fabio. Burgundy, gold and indigo balloons filled the club, decorated by Trish Panlilio, who, by the way, also caters the best dinner and lunch menus for her exclusive clientele. Some 300 guests from all over the world showed up. From Hong Kong came Ray Ng of Volar fame.


It was an awesome bash that was meticulously organized by Fabio’s true ladylove, Michelle Pamintuan, no less, who was a most gracious hostess, dahlings.


The who’s who of fashion, show biz and high society came, such as models Phoemela Baranda, Daniel Matsunaga and Georgina Wilson, bag designer Rocio Olbes, and dashing New Zealand Ambassador Reuben Livermore, palanggas.


DJs Manolet Dario and Euric Lumanog kept everyone rocking and rolling on the dance floor till most of the invitees had to be swept out, would you believe?

It was a spectacular night of beauty and glamour when Rustan’s cemented its position as the best one-stop beauty paradise offering an impressive lineup of world-class and high-quality brands.

Former model and now DJ Christina Badkiss started spinning for the invitees like Joey Mead and Patty Laurel and sought-after stylist Jing Monis.


More fun: Via InstaPrint, guests got to take home photos of their roaring moments at the bash, dahlings. After all, the happening was sponsored by Samsung TV screens and tablets and powered by Globe Tattoo.


For many decades now, Rustan’s has brought out the beauty in every woman. But true beauty certainly lies within, so the bash supported a very worthy cause that evening via The Kiss of Goodwill, a fundraiser aimed to help “Yolanda” victims. For every kiss mark on the exhibit wall, Rustan’s pledged to donate P100 to the Red Cross.


It definitely was an amazing night of beauty for a cause, dahlings, said Sevrine Miailhe, Rustan’s marketing communications manager for cosmetics, perfumes and toiletries.
